    ANOTHER Truly Excellent Pure HO Game
     

    Sunny Sunny SunnySunny Sunny

    BASED ON DEMO

    Do you like CRYSTAL CLEAR REALISTIC GRAPHICS, a minimum of SOUND effects, background noise and SUBTLE MUSIC, with sliders to allow you to set the levels you want?

    Do you want to play an adventure where the GAMEPLAY is STRAIGHTFORWARD and doesn’t involve crazy uses for odd objects, where some doors are unlocked, and NO COMPLEX PUZZLES are keeping you away from your goal?

    Do you want to visit HO SCENES with a slight interactive component, but most of all, beautiful EASY-TO-SEE OBJECTS?

    This game is for you.

    “Mysteries Of The Undead” has a STORY which lets our imagination run free. A mysterious illness has befallen an island in the Pacific (= GREAT LOCATIONS), and people are turning into blood thirsty monsters. Your team is coming to the rescue, but are shipwrecked on the way in. Now you must not only survive, but find your team mates as well.

    The game is a bit of a HANDHOLDER (not for the expert crowd), there is an INTERACTIVE JUMP MAP to tell you where to go next. HINT is helpful outside the HO scenes.

    The HO scenes are the clincher here, they are SUPERB. They involve a LIST where the total number of items is larger than the panel, so you have to keep checking back. I like that added layer of difficulty. There are a large number of interactive items in each list. The last, inventory, item is highlighted at the end.

    My only complaint is the ‘sheathed sword’ needed in an otherwise totally modern environment. There have also been a good variety of locations for the scenes already. My room, the beach, an office, underwater...

    There was only ONE PUZZLE, and that was a very easy one, even for me, and skip took literally 15 secs.

    There are 10 ARTIFACTS TO COLLECT, and these interact with specially marked places to give you a needed item.

    This game is a brilliantly designed game for those HO players who want a class act with some purpose to the action, without the stress and trials of a full HO Puzzle Adventure. There is more to it than other HO games but not complex enough to frustrate.

    Excellent choice!

    I Recommend This Game!
